10 Second Trivia. Which of these U.S. department stores was founded first? Macy's, Sears, J.C. Penny or Bloomingdales. Macy's chases it's roots back to the 1850s' making it the oldest department store on this list.


10秒快速问答。以下哪一家美国百货公司最早成立?梅西百货、西尔斯百货、J.C. Penny百货或布鲁明戴尔百货。梅西百货追根溯源到19世纪50年代,成为榜单上最古老的百货公司。

Macy's recently announced that it plans to close 125 of its stores over the next three years. That's almost one-fifth of all its locations. It expects 2,000 jobs to be lost and the company is hoping this will help it save money and better adapt to the changing ways in which people shop.


梅西百货最近宣布,计划在未来三年内关闭125家门店。这几乎占了其所有门店的五分之一。预计将有2000人失业,该公司希望这将有助于节省资金,并更好地适应人们不断变化的购物方式。

This is especially bad news in struggling malls. The ones where foot traffic has decreased simply because fewer and fewer people are shopping there. Macy's is an anchor store.


于苦苦挣扎的购物中心来说,这尤其是个坏消息。那些因为购物的人越来越少而导致人流量减少的地方。梅西百货是一家旗舰店。

A major retail location that brings in a lot of shoppers that in turn visit the smaller stores around it. So take away an anchor store and the whole mall can suffer. Macy's isn't alone though. Thousands of stores closed across America last year. Some analysts have called this a sort of "retail apocalypse" but people are still spending money. They're just doing it differently and away from traditional shopping malls.


一个主要的零售地点,吸引了很多购物者,而这些购物者又会光顾附近的小商店。因此,如果取消一家旗舰店,整个购物中心都会遭殃。不过,梅西百货并不是唯一一家。去年,全美数千家商店关门。一些分析师称这是一种“零售业末日”,但人们仍在消费。他们只是在做不同的事情,远离传统的购物中心。
